Widow
On Fire (Cruz Del Sur)

By: Mike SOS

Widow?s haunting old school metal goes 10 tracks deep and conjures up the days when Eddie ran rampant with Iron Maiden and parents were freaking out over King Diamond?s imagery. Playing in a similar power metal style as the aforementioned, Widow?s chops are aces, especially on the harmonizing guitar runs that sound like 1986 all over again. The female vocals also are a nice touch, especially when accentuated by its male counterparts, giving off the epic flare a la Lacuna Coil. Unfortunately, with song titles like "Misstery" and "Sinderella", this band?s rating on the cheese meter reads highly excessive, rendering ON FIRE tough to take completely seriously. But, if you can stand a bit of tongue in cheek with your dated metal, it?s all yours.
